SpeakerByte #11: Rehearse Out Loud

Until you’ve rehearsed out loud you can’t truly tell what works and what doesn’t, what trips you up, what’s too complicated, or what just doesn’t sound like you.

A presentation that’s “well done” on paper is probably about 70% done in reality. On average, it takes three to five focused rehearsals for a speaker to really seal the deal — especially when it comes to critical or career-defining presentations.

You’ll probably find yourself editing and rewriting as you practice out loud. That’s to be expected. . . better now than later!
